As a young girl, on the island of Barbados, Janelle Headley would grab every opportunity to be involved in the arts. Whether it was singing, dancing, acting, painting or drawing, Janelle was always there, in the thick of things, creating. For her this was ‘home’ —the best way she could express herself. Upon graduation from York University, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Specialised Honours Degree in Music, Janelle performed at numerous events including the Barbados Jazz Festival and the TD Toronto Jazz Festival. In addition to performing, Janelle has always been passionate about performing arts education. Her desire is for everyone to experience the joy of actively participating in the arts. In 2005 she founded Live the Music! Breathe the Music©, a company dedicated to offering superior training to aspiring vocalists and musicians by way of private lessons and workshops. Six years after launching Live-Breathe Music! Janelle incorporated dance and theatre through Operation Triple Threat: Sing. Dance. Act. Janelle Headley’s goal is to use the performing arts to inspire, to question and to catalyse change. She believes that the message is as critical as the medium, and hopes that, through the opportunities she provides, she can help other artists to be the best they can be.
